After two men walked into a Texas Chicken & Burgers in Brooklyn earlier this month, one of them loudly declared that no one would give him a dollar, police sources told the New York Daily News.

With that, a man sitting in a booth near the cashier's counter offered to help pay for their meal — but the two men didn't like that one bit, the paper said.

One of them replied, “I’ve got money, I’ve got money" — and the man sitting in the booth was then told to "mind your f***ing business!” police sources told the Daily News.

Apparently, that wasn't enough of a hint, so they started punching the 37-year-old man and tried grabbing his cane, police sources told the paper — but the victim swung his cane back at his attackers.

Suddenly three other men ran inside the restaurant and joined the beat down, punching and kicking the victim in his head and body.

To top it off, they dragged the beaten man toward the front door before leaving — and then another man came into the restaurant and went through the victim's pockets, apparently taking items, the paper said. The victim's hands appear to be white in surveillance video of the attack.

Through it all, two other customers literally stepped over the twitching, bleeding man, with one of them asking, “Can I get No. 12?” police sources told the Daily News.

The victim suffered broken bones, including his nose, along with cuts and bruises, police told the paper, adding that he was taken to a hospital and was in stable condition.

The incident occurred around 7:30 p.m. March 1 at the Texas Chicken & Burgers on Ocean Avenue at Church Avenue in Prospect Park South, the Daily News said, adding that police released video of the incident Tuesday. It isn't clear why the date on the video time stamp is different from what police told the paper.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-8477, the paper said.
